Rowan University Art Gallery presents “7 Mile Girls,” an exhibition exploring the connection between Black female style of Detroit’s inner city, with designer fashion and self-empowerment, November 7 - December 21, 2019. Shown is © Jamea Richmond-Edwards, 2019, “Two Sisters and the Horned Serpent,” 8 x 6 feet. Image Courtesy of Kravets Wehby Gallery Featuring several new works by artist Jamea RichmondEdwards alongside paintings loaned by the Rubell Family Collection, the exhibition will run November 7 - December 21, 2019, with an opening reception on Thursday, November 7 from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. RSVP to the Opening Reception: Richmond-Edwards grew up observing the Black community’s fashion style in Detroit’s inner-city during the late 1980s and early ’90s. Popular and idolized were Coogi sweaters, red gators, and designer bags from Gucci and Louis Vuitton. She understood the correlation of the fashion industry around the Black female experience and their complex relationship with luxury clothing. The artifice of dressing became the driving narrative of her work and her form of Black aesthetic and expression. She was particularly interested in how her work confronted social disparities and the inequitable practices and tone-deaf decisions continually made by the fashion house of H&M, Adidas, Gucci, and Prada. In opposition to the market focus of these brands her imagery is inspired by the styles of Black designers who have made a positive impact on the fashion perspective, particularly Dapper Dan for Gucci, and the work of Duro Olowu, alongside influences of artists coming out of AfriCOBRA and the Black Arts Movement.

The son of an Italian instrument maker, Lang got his start on

Mendelssohn Club Chorus Announces 2019-2020 Season

Certified Nursing Assistants • Home Health Aides

Season Theme of “Frontiers” to Highlight Groundbreaking Works of Choral Music usic lovers are invited to join the Mendelssohn Club Chorus on a journey to the frontiers of choral music. For the 2019-2020 season the chorus will be exploring works that were groundbreaking at the time and ushered progressive compositional ideas into the forefront of choral music. All-Night Vigil – Sergi Rachmaninoff – 4 p.m. Sunday, October 27, 2019 at Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral (Pre-Concert Lecture - 3 p.m.) This exquisite unaccompanied masterpiece is the culmination of two decades of Rachmaninoff’s interest in Russian sacred music, and is a predecessor to 20th-century classical music. It is frequently praised as his finest achievement. Dark but shimmering; haunting but breath-takingly beautiful—this is the perfect concert to usher in the autumnal season. A Feast of Carols – 5 p.m. Saturday, December 14, 2019 at Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church Performing for their 32nd year at Saint Paul’s, the chorus will serve up a celebration of traditional and innovative seasonal carols that will be entertaining for all ages. This year the chorus is pleased to be joined by organist Matthew Glandorf and the Mendelssohn Brass. It’s always a sell-out, so get your tickets early for this warm and uplifting kick-off to the holiday season. Departures: Mass in C and Choral Fantasy – Beethoven Featuring Symphony in C and Tomoko Kanamaru, piano – 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 7, 2020 at Church of the Holy Trinity The Mendelssohn Club Chorus will perform two of Beethoven’s


choral masterpieces in honor of the 250th anniversary of his birth – Mass in C and Choral Fantasy. This program features two works that served as points of departure for the composer – both of which were vastly different from what concert goers of the day might expect. An underrated masterpiece, Mass in C opened up new worlds of expression for the liturgical texts of the Mass. His novel approach was expressly modern and pointed towards the future. Choral Fantasy was a new type of composition: a large symphonic work for piano, orchestra, and chorus. One of his most intriguing works, Beethoven overcame confines and conventions in this genredefying hybrid composition. Limitless – 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 2, 2020 at Chestnut Hill Presbyterian Church An ethereal and joyful performance, featuring Observer in the Magellanic Cloud by Grammy winner Mason Bates. Inspired by ancient Maori culture (indigenous people of New Zealand), the playful sounds of robotic technology, and the far off reaches of space, this work expands the boundaries of choral music. The concert will also include selections from Jessica Curry’s haunting soundtrack to the video game Everybody Gone to the Rapture, and a new co-commission by composer Ola Gijelo. This concert embraces the season’s theme of “frontiers,” and promises to be an unforgettable experience. Get ready to be transported to the forefront of choral music where there are no limits. Full season details and ticket information are available on the Mendelssohn Club Chorus website:


and Melbourne International Chamber Music Competitions. The Verona has delighted worldwide audiences at New York’s Weill Recital and Alice Tully Halls, London’s Wigmore Hall, Osaka’s Izumi Hall, Abu Dhabi’s National Theatre, and Melbourne Recital Hall.

The Verona is currently the quartet-in-residence at the New England Conservatory of Music’s Professional String Quartet Training program, and previously studied at The Juilliard School and Indiana University.

NEW ADDITIONS TO THE HAVERFORD COLLEGE PHOTO COLLECTION, SPANNING 1850 TO TODAY, ON DISPLAY F I n the last two years, the Haverford College Photo Collection has been gifted and purchased hundreds of new pieces, including those by Pierre Petit, Catherine Jansen, Ben Magid Rabinovitch, and Steve McCurry. Collectively, these works represent slices of photographic history from its origins in the 19th century through contemporary works. A new exhibit at Haverford College presents 40 of these recent collection acquisitions together to illustrate the story of the photographic artform from landscapes and portraits to travel, photojournalism, and conceptual works. A Survey of Recent Acquisitions of Photographs from 2017-2019 spans French 19thcentury photography documenting monuments and public works of significance—Edouard Baldus’ 1865 “Les Ramparts a Avignon,” Charles Nègre’s 1859 “General View, Vincennes Imperial Asylum”—a large gelatin silver panoramic contact print of the 1914 Harvard Yale Game by Joseph Candee, a small 1999 Katherine Jansen print, “Mythical Landscapes,” that stands out for its innovative use of xerography, and Hiroji Kubota’s contemporary color photojournalism of North Korea. The exhibit also includes diverse works showcasing the developing technology of the artform such as an archival pigment print of George Krause’s 1971 black-and-white portrait of architect Louis I. Kahn, which demonstrates the ways in which traditional photographic materials can be adapted to the newest printing materials, and a steel engraving of Mathew Brady’s 1850 portrait of James Fenimore Cooper, which is an example of one way a photographic-derived image could be reproduced and mass circulated in another medium before photographs could be directly reproduced in ink onto a printed page. A Survey of Recent Acquisitions of Photographs from 2017-2019 will be on view October 26 through December 8, at Haverford College’s Atrium Gallery in Jane Lutnick Fine Arts Center, at 370 Lancaster Avenue, Haverford, PA 19041. An opening reception will be held Friday, October 25, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The Atrium Gallery, in Jane Lutnick Fine Arts Center, is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. For info, contact Audrey A. and John L.

at WPEC in West Palm Beach, FL, Nick wrote and produced segments for the evening newscasts, and reported live from sporting events. Four years later, Nick became Sports Director at WTAJ in Altoona, PA, where he also wrote and produced the Penn State and Pittsburgh Steelers specials. Fast forward to 2012 and Baton Rouge, where Nick was researching, editing and reporting stories for WAFB while cultivating vital community relationships. Then in 2014, WEWS of Cleveland came calling. Nick now calls South Philly home. He’s happy to be back in the Northeast, closer to his retired father in New England and family in Washington DC. Born on Edwards Air Force Base in California, Nick grew up on military bases, and lived seven years in Germany. In his spare time, Nick loves to play golf, travel and spend time with his girlfriend Lisa and their baby girl, Lilijana. For his Tasty Talk charity, Nick has chosen the Foundation Fighting Blindness, the world’s leading private funder of research to prevent, treat and cure retinal diseases, which affect more than ten million Americans – and millions more worldwide. Each year, it funds more than one hundred cutting-edge research projects in such promising areas as genetics, nutrition, and gene and stem-cell therapies, often providing the critical bridge between research, proof of concept, and corporate investment in clinical trials. The day before Halloween has always been special to Tasty Talks host local realtor Michelle Leonard. But she promises all treats and no tricks for this upcoming event. (But you never know.) After all, it is “mischief night” that evening! And Yangming’s owner Michael Wei said, “I am looking forward to seeing the neighborhood children that evening all dressed up for Trick or Treating, but I hope this Tasty Talk crowd waits until the evening to morph into masquerade,” but hesitantly added, “one never knows and with the lively Tasty Talk attendees, anything is possible!” Nick Foley is sure to pack the house, so get your tickets now for Wednesday, October 30. Just $25 ($30 at the door, if seats available) covers hors d’oeuvres, a wonderful family-style lunch, dessert, tax and tip, and your donation.

violin and met a young Giuseppe (Joe) Venuti while attending grade school together in South Philadelphia. By 1920 Lang switched to banjo while playing as part of the Mound City Blue Blowers with Red McKenzie. Soon after he would switch to guitar. He performed and recorded as a solo artist, duets with Venuti and later Lonnie Johnson, as well as with Roger Wolfe Kahn, Jean Goldkette, Bix, Tram, Duke, Ruth Etting, Annette Hanshaw and Paul Whiteman’s Orchestra in 1929 when he met and became close friends with a young Bing Crosby, becoming his contracted accompanist on all recordings. As house musician for Okeh records his guitar playing can be heard on hundreds of recordings and he influenced Django, Charlie Christian, Les Paul and others that would follow after him. This year Eddie Lang Day is coming to Wallingford’s Community Arts Center, and will feature many of the recordings Lang did with many of the bands and performers he recorded with as well as an assortment of other classic Jazz Age songs. Blackbird Society Orchestra – an authentic 1920s Jazz band – will host the event. Other special guests will be on hand including Marty Grosz playing some Lang/Kress duets. But there is more than just making music with this event – it has also been a charity event each year, raising money to help various organizations from City Team Ministries (helping feed the needy during the Holidays) to Dancing Classrooms Philly and Musicopia (helping children enroll in dance and music programs). This year proceeds will go to Bryn Mawr Hospital’s Hospice Program. Donations will also be excepted at the door and a Eddie Lang Day 2019 GoFundMe page has been set up as well. Seating is general admission. Tickets: $20 in advance or at the door. Online ticketing closes at 12 noon on Friday, October 25. Additional tickets are available at the door on the day of the event on a first come first served basis until the event sells out. Only cash will be accepted as payment for any tickets purchased at the door. Tickets are available at the door or online in advance: SAY YOU SAW IT IN CITY SUBURBAN NEWS

Local Musician Richard Barnes and Eddie Lang Day Drexel Hill native, Richard Barnes, discovered music at an early age. Picking up a clarinet at 8 years old, then playing cello while in Garrettford Elementary School and into Drexel Hill Jr High. “It wasn’t considered ‘cool’ to be in the Orchestra, so I switched to electric guitar,” Barnes said, reminiscing on over a 40 year journey of a passion for music. “Cello is still my favorite instrument – it is so haunting and romantic.” After seeing Elton John at the Spectrum in 1976 he had one mission – to replace Elton’s guitarist Davey Johnstone once he’d leave Elton’s band. “I’ve been waiting 43 years now—can you believe Davey is still in the band!?” As music changed so did Barnes’ taste in music and his influences would vary from KISS to Santana, from Steely Dan to The Cars. “I was a product of the 70s an 80s and while I loved all the music form then, I just didn’t connect to it completely.” Then one fateful day in 1992 Barnes joined a group of friends at the Chestnut Cabaret to see Leon Redbone. “Immediately I knew this was the music I wanted to perform—early American Jazz, Blues and Popular tunes.” After steeping himself in Traditional Jazz recordings and studying the early pioneers he discovered Eddie Lang, known as “the Father of Jazz Guitar” who lived in South Philadelphia 1902-33 and dedicated his time to learning more about his history and musical contributions. A few years later Barnes would join Leon Redbone on the road and tour off and on with him for 10 years, learning more about guitar playing styles and deeper historical notes that Redbone would share. Inspired by seeing photos and videos of the yearly Bix Beiderbecke (legendary cornet player) Festivals, Barnes set out to find a way to pay homage to Lang and his music and in 2010 plans for the first Eddie Lang Day were finalized and staged at Chris’ Jazz Cafe. To make it official Barnes acquired a Mayoral Proclamation declaring October 25 every year as “Eddie Lang Day Philadelphia” and the event has drawn international press coverage in many music publications. In 2016 Barnes approached Philadelphia Mural Arts and commissioned a 60 foot tall wall mural of Lang to be placed at 7th and Fitzwater. This was also the first year that the event was hosted at the Kimmel Center, creating a partnership with the Consul General of the Italian Consulate Caio Philadelphia who embraced Lang as an Italian American role model. In 2017 Barnes recreated Lang’s work while in the Paul Whiteman Orchestra 1929-30 by using the original charts from the Whiteman collection to bring this music to life after not being heard played live since 1976. In 2018 Barnes, with the help of Councilman Mark Squilla, had Lang’s boyhood street, Saint Albans Street, renamed as Eddie Lang Way.

Jason Klein of Historical Glassworks demonstrates glassblowing, an ancient craft he and his company have kept alive in the 21st century. Photo/Glencairn Museum n the early 20th century, when Raymond Pitcairn asked the artists and glass craftsmen he brought together in Bryn Athyn to reproduce portions of authentic medieval stained glass windows for Bryn Athyn Cathedral and Glencairn Museum, he was instrumental in reviving a centuries’ old skill set that many had thought was lost. Today, dedicated men and women are studying the techniques of making glass, learning the old methods, adapting it to current equipment and demands, and sharing it with the rest of us as educators and inspired artisans—ensuring that the craft lives on. This October, Glencairn Museum presents a special opportunity to study the castle’s medieval and 20th-century reproduction stained glass windows. Then see how a 21st-century glassblower duplicates the ancient skills to create the brilliant colors and clarity that have astounded visitors to European cathedrals—and to Bryn Athyn’s own beautiful buildings. Learn all about it: Book a tour of Glencairn’s collection led by Museum educators, including inspiring windows that are copies from France’s Chartres Cathedral and original windows from Soissons Cathedral, also in France. The guided tour begins with a live demonstration of glassblowing techniques by Historical Glassworks’ Jason Klein and Leslie Pierce. Series of Stained-Glass Tours with Glassblowing Demonstrations This special tour series is available Tuesday through Friday at 2:30 p.m. starting Friday, October 18 through Wednesday, October 30 and at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 19; Sunday, October 20; and Saturday, October 26.

Merion Mercy Welcomes New Director of Development Stacy Gallagher ffective October 1, 2019, Stacy Gallagher began her work as Merion Mercy's Director of Development. Stacy Gallagher’s appointment is the culmination of a comprehensive process that included an exceptionally talented pool of applicants.


Stacy Gallagher is Merion Mercy Academy’s new Director of Development. Stacy has a deep commitment to girls’ schools. She was the Chief Advancement Officer at the Baldwin School where she successfully oversaw a capital campaign for a new Performing Arts Center; the school’s 125th anniversary celebration; the transition of a new Head of School; and a $2 million annual fund. She also facilitated the largest alumna gift in the Baldwin School’s history. Prior to working at Baldwin, Stacy served as the Director of Institutional Advancement at the Academy of Notre Dame de Namur and oversaw the completion of a $12 million campaign. In addition to her experience at the secondary school level, Stacy has worked in higher education at colleges and universities, including Dartmouth College, the University of Rochester, and Cabrini University. She has also demonstrated an ability to provide leadership in areas outside of her core development responsibilities. She has served in key roles on strategic planning committees, Middle States accreditation committees, and administrative teams. Over the last two decades, Stacy’s work has been characterized by her passion for and dedication to education and advancing the mission of each institution. She has raised the level of development success of each organization, increasing giving and the overall quality of development operations. Furthermore, Stacy has been lauded for her ability to create strong and collaborative relationships with donors, board members, volunteers, faculty, and colleagues. Stacy graduated from West Virginia Wesleyan College and has a fundraising certificate from Villanova University. She is married to Peter Gallagher, who is the Head Football Coach at Ursinus College. They have two daughters, Kaleigh (19) and Madison (17). Stacy Gallagher looks forward to continuing to carry the vision of Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy through strengthening engagement initiatives and philanthropic support for the school.

The title, 7 Mile Girls, refers to the street in Detroit where Richmond-Edwards grew up and where she encountered many of the female subjects in her paintings. Inspired by women in her life, the central female figures in her paintings confront the viewer with an air of confidence and agency as guardians of Black culture. Across her multi-layered collages, the artist conveys the complex intersection of Black style, capitalism, fashion, and personal identity through the lens of these resilient Black women. Rowan University Art Gallery has a history of programming that recognizes the achievements of women in the visual arts with group and one person exhibitions that included: Beverly Semmes (2011), Joyce Kozloff (2014), Jeanie Jaffe (2015), Diane Burko (2018), Heather Ujiie (2018), Ebony G. Patterson (2019), and Julie Heffernan (2019). Its permanent collection includes the groundbreaking and historic installation The Sister Chapel. Jamea Richmond-Edwards graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Jackson State University in 2004 where she studied painting and drawing. She went on to earn an MFA from Howard University in 2012. She offers a repertoire of portraits of women drawn using ink, graphite and mixed media collage. Richmond-Edward’s work has garnered the attention of various art critics including in The Washington Post and the Huffington Post’s “Black Artists: 30 Contemporary Art Makers Under 40 You Should Know.” Richmond-Edwards has exhibited her artwork nationally and internationally including the Delaware Art Museum, California African American Museum, Charles Wright Museum in Detroit, MI, and Galerie Myrtis in Baltimore, Maryland. Her works are in the permanent collection of private collectors across the country including the Embassy of the United States in Dakar, Senegal. She currently resides in Maryland with her husband and three sons. This exhibition is presented with the generous support of the Joseph Robert Foundation. Support for programming at Rowan University Art Galleries is also made possible by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts. Rowan University Art Gallery is located at 301 High Street West, Glassboro, NJ 08028. For info, call 856-256-4521 or visit

Lansdowne Folk Club presents a co-bill concert with Mara Levine (shown) and Gathering Time on Thursday, October 24, 2019. Photo/Manny Krevat the street and at the SEPTA train station approximately one block away. For reservations, parking information, advance ticket sales and information visit website, email or call 484-4666213. Cash only accepted at the door. Called one of the best singers of her generation by Christine Lavin, and “golden voiced” by David Amram, international touring artist Mara Levine is known as an exceptional song-finder, selecting and then creating beautiful interpretations of fine traditional and contemporary songs. On her latest CD “Facets of Folk,” Levine presents a number of songs of social conscience with themes of taking a stand, making a difference and considering the treatment of others. Those tunes, written by popular contemporary songwriters as well as emerging talents, are all carefully set among folk favorites and lesser known songs. Mara will be supported by Gathering Time, who will have their own set at well. Learn more about her and her music at Start with the 1960s folk tradition of Peter, Paul & Mary; add the vocal complexity and electric energy of Crosby, Stills & Nash, a dash of The Byrds and a jot of Joni Mitchell, and you have Gathering Time, a folk-rock/Americana harmony trio that has been turning heads for nearly a decade on the northeastern folk circuit and beyond. With a vocal blend often described as seamless, inspired guitar playing and precise percussion, Stuart Markus, Hillary Foxsong and Gerry McKeveny evince deep roots in ’60s folk-rock, with a healthy dash of traditional folk in the mix. Their stage chemistry makes clear that they take the music (if not themselves) very seriously, yet their infectious energy wins over even fans who never considered themselves folkies. Check them out at Other upcoming concerts include Deb Callahan on November 21, and Stephen DiJoseph on December 5. Founded in 1993, the Lansdowne Folk Club is a 501(c) (3) all volunteer non-profit corporation dedicated to presenting folk, acoustic and blues music.
